Forums: Village pump → Dead links/sources

A lot of the URLs linking to sources stating that the "RPG books are not canon" are dead. I noticed that the only link that was still working on the Lore page was the one leading to Micky Neilson's tweet from 2015. I looked around and found out that none of the sources on Tandred's page, aside from a mention by Ian Bates, were working either.

I tried looking around and found a link to the deleted Second Dev Q&A on the wayback machine but not much else beyond that. Does anyone have any of the other tweets archived or otherwise saved? Perhaps some other sources can be added in place of the lost ones instead? Ian Bates did mention something about Metzen saying that the RPG was non-canon at a Blizzcon.

Blizzard broke the links to all old forum posts and news articles when they overhauled the website a few years back, and the links to Sean Copeland's tweets don't work because neither of his Twitter accounts exist anymore. I found at least one working archive link for each of the Ask CDev posts on the Wayback Machine, which I'll addd to the Ask Creative Development page, but unfortunately I don't think we can say the same about Copeland's tweets. I don't think a replacement source is needed for the "RPG isn't canon" thing, though, since information from no-longer-available web pages and Blizzard posts should still be valid (unless they're contradicted by later sources, obviously). -- IconSmall TrollDeathKnight Male.gif DeludedTroll (talkcontribs) 16:12, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
